Pittsburgh outfit The Homeless Gospel Choir have shared a very 80’s video for newest single 1983 – because, duh!
The Homeless Gospel Choir will be joining Frank Turner, Lucero, and The Menzingers on the Be More Kind World Tour next month. Ahead of the UK shows, they’ve released their latest single off of their 2017 release The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal, out now on A-F Records.
Derek Zanetti also known as The Homeless Gospel Choir, is a protest singer, author and artist based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Through his on-stage humor and vulnerability, Derek creates an atmosphere of inclusion and community. He engages with the audience in a way that allows them to know that they’re not alone. The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal is a concept record, loosely based on Zanetti telling life stories via short acts throughout the album.” The album was described by Frank Turner as “a generationally defining album for the underground punk scene.” He also said, “In half an hour, Derek reminded me of what punks supposed to be.” The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal features guest vocals from both Frank Turner and Frank Iero.
